**** wish i could do this i have a good one against nesdec oh well can i still post one to see how it compares to the others?
Sure thing, feel free, though as you are under age you won't be eligible to win unfortunately.
This is the worst game on the planet! You are all just wasting your time. Just played a kid who was 4 levels below me, he scored 4 goals on 9 shots to beat me 4-3. I had 32 shots. 9+ minutes of time on attack compared to his 2 minutes. Unbelievable how EA can continue to incorporate this "ice-tilt" b.s. into the game. Maybe because they know we have no other choice of a hockey video game. It's a sickening monopoly.
